It is the highest rated X-Men film in the franchise with X2: X-Men United and First Class both receiving the same 87%.

Check out what they said below:

The movie finds a lot of success, largely due to solid work from a lot of extraordinary actors. They maneuver around a jam-packed plot that, in lesser hands, could have left you looking at your watch.

While another person said:

The most ambitious and ingenious of the long-running series, X-Men: Days of Future Past keeps the key crew of mutants busier than ever.

However, as with every piece your not gonna please everyone:

Unfortunately, after initially running hot with breathtaking 3D effects and a fascinating premise, Days Of Future Past gradually cools into an unnecessarily convoluted, compromised product.

Days of Future past seems to have picked out all the best elements of the series to create an epic mash-up of the X-Men universe. From the trailer this it seems that this will be dense, action packed with some time travel in there for good measure. A lot of balls are in the air here but in the right hands they can be managed. It would seem that Singer is onto a winner if we are to trust these early reviews.

The X-Men continue the battle of acceptance and potential extinction only this time they are battling on two battle fronts of time; the seventies and modern day. We will see young and old versions of characters teaming up to fight a mutual enemy; The Sentinals.

Check out the final trailer below:

X-Men: Days of Future Past comes to theaters May 23.
